We are proud to inform you that Armenia Dry Rosé 2014 was awarded a gold medal at Le Mondial du Rosé* winecompetition held in France in April 2015.
It is the first rosé wine produced in Armenia to win a gold medal in an international competition. The international jury, consisting of 50 oenologists and wine experts, selected the best rosé wines among 1114 samples from 28 different countries.
This achievement adds to the growing collection of prestigious awards received by Armenia Wine Company in recent years, among which are: “Muscats du Monde”, France, “Wine and Barrel”, France, “Concours Mondial de Bruxelles”, Belgium, “Decanter World Wine Awards”, UK. This gold medal is an additional testimony that Armenia Wine Company is internationally recognized as the leading Armenian producer of high quality wines that are appealing to a wide range of consumers including highly demanding wine-lovers and discerning wine experts.
There is a new international winemaking trend towards rosé wines which receive growing consumer appreciation and popularity globally. Rose wines have widely become a pleasant everyday dining companion. They charm with their delicate lightness and elegant aroma.
Armenia Dry Rosé is a pale pink rosé made from Areni, Armenia’s signature native red grape variety. It boasts intense aromas of wild strawberries, cherry and forest fruits, followed by a round and smooth palate and a long-lasting aftertaste.It’s very trendy to serve it as an aperitif but it also pairs perfectly with light dishes. Our top recommendation is serving it with spring and summer meals: grilled vegetables, salads, hot appetizers and Lake Sevan trout dishes. Armenia Rosé served chilled (8-12 °C) is your best companion on long, hot summer days.
* Le Mondial du Rosé is a prestigious competition of rosé wines organized by the Union of Oenologists of France under the triple patronage of the organizations most involved in promoting the global wine industry OIV (International Organization of Vine and Wine), Vinofed (federation of major international competitions for wines and spirits) and International Union of Oenologists.
